What is FilmFanatic Toolbar?

FilmFanatic Toolbar is potentially unwanted software developed by Mindspark Interactive Network, coming to a computer without user consent. FilmFanatic gets on your PC bundled with free programs (e.g. archivers, players and many other well-known programs) via web-downloaders. For certain users, FilmFanatic may seem like a useful toolbar that provides a variety of functions, such as watching movies online for free, access to popular sites and social networks, weather forecast and more. However, this can give a lot of problems. It hijacks many popular browsers (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer) and irreversibly changes browser settings, homepage and default search engine. Also, FilmFanatic Toolbar collects users’ personal information, browsing history and analyzes the activity on the network. This information is sent to third parties for unknown purposes. In addition, the program significantly reduces the performance of your PC and complicates browsing. Do not risk the safety of your information. Remove FilmFanatic Toolbar right now.
